Cooking classes in Rome

  • 4


I'm heading to Rome soon, and am hoping to find some cooking classes to take. I've already investigated www.cookingclassesinrome.com, and they are unfortunately booked solid while I'll be there; I've also contacted Faith Wallingham, but she only appears to be doing tours while I'm there, not hands-on lessons.

Has anyone taken any lessons that they enjoyed? In English, ideally, as I speak not a lick of Italian.

  1. I can recommend Daniela:

    She's great, speaks English and combines the class with a tour of the Testaccio market.

      I was going to point you to www.elizabethminchilliinrome.com too. I've never used any of the services but read the blog frequently . . . .

      please report back if you found success (I realize this is an old post)! I've been itching to get back to Italy and a great cooking class would be a great excuse!

        Thanks so much! But I don't do cooking classes. On my 'to do' list is to write up a post on all the different options on doing a day cooking class in Rome since it's a question that pops up frequently.

          Ah - sorry didn't mean to misrepresent.

          It must have been the recent Bonci pizza post that has gotten my whole "I need to go to Rome and cook" confusion going!
